Anise lavender smells exactly like licorice to me. If you want a great bar of moisturizing goat milk soap, and you love licorice this is the soap for you!

It smells just like you would expect: pure almond goodness. Like all of the zum bars, it leaves my skin super soft.

The grapefruit zum bar an intense pink grapefruit smell that is great for helping me wake up in the morning. I leaves my skin soft, and puts me in a good mood for the day ahead. I even like the pretty pink and white swirly pattern.
Gels/Soaps -Unlisted Brand - Indigo Wild Cocoa Zum Goats Milk Chocolate Soap
rosehugo 10/28/2007 6:37:00 PM
I highly recommend the indigo wild zum bars. They leave my skin clean and super soft. Cocoa is by far the most lightly scented of the zum bars I have tried. I was slightly disappointed by the smell, because I was spoiled by the intense scent of some of the other bars including frankincense & myrrh and grapefruit. If you want a good moisturizing bar of goat milk soap, but can't handle the intensity of the other zum bars, I suggest trying cocoa.
Gels/Soaps -Unlisted Brand - indigo wild zum bar citrus mint
rosehugo 10/28/2007 6:16:00 PM
This is a great bar of soap with a funny smell. I really love the cleansing job of the zum bars, but citrus mint was not my cup of tea. It smells the way your mouth taste if you drink orange juice immediately after using mouthwash. Yuck!
Gels/Soaps -Unlisted Brand - indigo wild zum bar cedar

Like all of Indigo Wild's zum bars, this is a great bar of soap. It leaves my skin so soft. Cedar is one of the newest zum bars on the market. I usually like woodsy smells, so I had high hopes for it. Unfortunately, the smell was overwhelmingly strong. It was making my bathroom smell like a cedar chest. I finally had to put it in a ziploc baggie to contain the smell (some still leaked out). I think the cedae zum bar is best suited for a man that wants to smell like a carpenter or a lumberjack.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Indigo Wild Eau de Zum in Frankincense & Myrrh
rosehugo 10/27/2007 3:56:00 PM
Eau de Zum is incredible. At first sniff it may seem a bit too strong and masculine, but it quickly dries down to a more wearable fragrance. I find it to be a very calming scent. In fact, I like to spray my sheets with the matching mist before bed in the winter. I agree with the previous poster that eau de zum is more suitable for cold weather than hot weather. I recommend trying the frankincense & myrrh soap from indigo wild first to determine if you like the smell enough to want to invest in eau de zum.
Skincare - Body -Unlisted Brand - Indigo Wild Zum Bar Goats Milk Soap *any scent*

I love these soaps. They leave my skin soft and they smell great. I have tried most of the scents. My year round personal favorites are frankincense & myrrh, lemon-lavender, tangerine-orange, and grapefruit. I also love some of the scents that only available seasonally: jingle zum (vanilla-cinnamon, available around Christmas), bah hum zum (peppermint, available around Christmas), and red, white, & zum (vanilla-orange, available in the summer). All of the zum bars are strongly scented, and some of them are overwhelming. I have found the frankinfetti, patchouli, confetti, lemon-sage, lemongrass, roobios, and cedar to be too strong for my taste.
Mineral veil is the perfect finishing touch to my makeup routine. My skin just always looks better with mineral veil on it.

It smells great for a few seconds, then it turns into a bland nutty smell. It's just not worth it.
Fragrances -Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Vanille Mokha

I use it as an air freshner to make the house smell like coffee shop. I have to layer it with a sweet vanilla perfume to make it wearable, but I have to admit it is quite nice when it is sweetened. It is just too bitter on its own. I think a man could easily wear this one.
Fragrances -Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Caramel Sunset
rosehugo 9/10/2007 8:53:00 PM
It's an odd combination of smells. I detect salt, caramel, vanilla, and ozone. Alone each of these may be okay, but the balance is just off.
Fragrances -Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Vanille Pineapple
rosehugo 9/10/2007 7:59:00 PM
To me, this smells like a can of pineapple chunks. Seriously. I get an extremely strong metallic note mixed with a highly acidic pineapple. This stuff smells corosive enough to eat through anything like the spit of an evil alien in a cheesy sci-fi movie.
Fragrances -Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Vanille Citrus

I have to agree with the last poster. This smells exactly like fruit loop cereal. Even though it is my favorite cereal, I do not want to smell like it all day.
Fragrances -Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Vanille Extreme

Pure vanilla goodness. It isn't as wonderful as La Ligne St Barth Vanille West Indies, but it is pretty nice. I wouldn't buy it again, because there are cheaper ways to get an equally good straight vanilla. (I recommend l'aromarine vanilla edt.)
